I love this podcast ✨✨
Amazing podcast! Arthur talks in a very vivid and clear manner. I am in my 40s (not 20s and 30s, his target group) and still find it so relevant for a happier life

Excellent Podcast
I absolutely love the messages that Arthur Brooks provides to his readers, listeners, etc. My only recommendation would be to follow a similar model to MindPump in that they video their podcast and post on YouTube as well (just another way to reach out to more viewers).
